Grief and Loss counseling is a process of helping an individual or family in moving through the stages of grief. You will become familiar with the 5 stages that one goes through during this difficult time. You will feel validated for the feelings you are experiencing and you will learn tools to help you move through these stages of grief. You are not alone and you can get through this difficult journey in time. It is a process, not a sprint. Give yourself permission to grieve and to work through these stages at your own pace. I will also help you identify your support system and encourage you to utilize this support when appropriate.

We have all experience loss in one way or another. Whether it be loss of a loved one, career, or dream, we can all identify with the heartbreak that comes from moving on. Often people say "time heals all wounds," and partly that is true, however time itself isn't magic. Time allows us space to be able to process and grieve. When the loss is overwhelming, people often get stuck in the grief. We work with clients to help them get unstuck, honor the loss, heal the wound, and when they are ready - dream new dreams. You do not have to be alone in this grieving process. Let us walk with you through this difficult time.

I have advanced training and experience in helping people deal with traumatic loss and grief including loss through suicide, accident or needing to put a pet to sleep. My approach helps you reduce disturbing images and bad dreams related to the loss, reduce feelings of guilt, reduce a sense of hopelessness about your future, and reconnect to happy images and memories of the person or pet you lost. I have also helped people with job loss and relationship endings. I also incorporate a six step model for accommodating loss and EMDR Therapy to help reduce the pain of the grief process.

Understanding that what you are experiencing in your grief is normal can be an important part in healing. Friends and family may not know what to say, and in their desire to see you stop hurting, they may tell you that it's time to get over it and move on. With me, you will find that wherever you are in your grief process is accepted. While I will help you process your feelings so you may heal, I will not hurry you along faster than you are ready to go. I will never have the expectation that you will "get over" your loved one. Instead, I will help you to redefine your life without that person in it so that you can experience joy again.

If you can grieve well, you can live well. Loss is a normal part of life, so learning to grieve loss should be a normal part of life as well. If you struggle with grief and loss, I can help. More than likely, you feel “stuck” in your grief. You probably are. I believe getting stuck happens because our culture doesn’t value grieving. It actually teaches us to “move on.” You should be able to move on. The trick is how. I can help you navigate your grief in a way that will move you thorough it. The approach I use can also be used with any other troubling emotions. Contact me today for help with your grief. You don’t have to remain stuck any longer.

Grief and loss is a part of every life. Sometimes we can become stuck in a rut and be unable to move on with our lives. Having someone come alongside you and help carry that burden can make all the difference. I believe in the healing power of art when words fail and the healing found in the therapeutic relationship. Many are traumatized by the losses they have endured and only need to reach out for help.

We in the Western world have a difficult time with death and loss. And yet they are unavoidable realities. Often loss is experienced with the death of a loved one, but grief is also experienced through relationship conflicts, chronic illness, addictions, divorce, the loss of a job or even the death of a long held dream. Grief cannot be rushed or it will continue much longer than if that process is fully accepted. Grief therapy is some of the most significant you will ever do and is often filled with revelations, healing, as well as moments of laughter.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.
